ABOUT BREAST CARE & CANCER TREATMENT

Did you know that most women are wearing the wrong bra size?

Or that many women with cancer aren’t aware of the best garments for treatment and recovery?

We surveyed some of these women and found that more than 60 per cent weren’t recommended appropriate wear for post-surgery or treatment.

 


“I was completely lost and ended up spending hundreds of dollars on ill-fitting bras and prostheses that were not right for me.”  

- Breast cancer survivor and survey respondent


 

Look Good Feel Better wants to change this with its new workshop addition, Breast Care & Cancer Treatment. This special segment will be rolled out in select workshops across the Greater Toronto Area in January, with expansion planned in cities across Canada throughout 2018. It’s open to all women, facing all cancers to provide education and resources on appropriate wear and fit for every day bra essentials during treatment and into recovery, while also providing detailed information on post-surgical bras, prostheses, etc. for women with breast cancer.

The special Breast Care & Cancer Treatment sessions include the original Look Good Feel Better workshop, which teaches valuable tools and techniques on cosmetic hygiene, skin care, cosmetics, hair and wig alternatives, followed by the new 20-minute segment.

What you’ll learn during the Breast Care & Cancer Treatment section:
  • Fitting Tips

  • Different types of bras (from sport to t-shirt bras, lingerie and swim wear)

  • How to manage lymphedema

  • Bras during breast cancer (from post-surgical to radiation, compression and mastectomy bras)

  • Breast forms/Prostheses

  • How to prepare for a fitting

  • How to find the right retailer

 


“I would love to tell people what a difference a good bra makes … Now I feel comfortable to wear a sports bra and this summer was the first time after 13 years I could walk down a pool deck.”

- Yasmin, breast cancer survivor


“We’re still female, we still want to feel sexy we want to know that we can get a sexy bra that can support us – who wants to live their life in a sports bra?”

- Deborah, breast cancer survivor
